Selecting Editorial Members
Having an editorial board is very important: they act as ambassadors for the bulletin. Editorial board members are ultimately accountable for the quality of the bulletin’s contents.
Editorial board members are selected by the editor with input from other editorial board members. Editorial boards generally undergo a complete revision every three or four months, with members joining, stepping down or continuing. Changes also occur in the interim, for example, if a member resigns.
The founder of The Librarian Times performs as Editor-in-Chief who has overall responsibility for the bulletin. However, if necessary, Editor-in-Chief can nominate anyone in this position.
An associate editor who coordinates and liaises with other board members finds and writes content assists the editor on editorials, collect news and research highlights, and carries out the developmental of the bulletin.
